Back up to cash/customer service (Former Employee), Smithers, BCSeptember 24, 2014
Pros: told what to do in the am and was left alone to accomplish this until my day was done
Cons: some drama
A typical day at work was being told what aisles i will be working down and what i would be doing, as i had already worked at a Canadian Tire before this one i had the knowledge that i needed to do my job at the Smithers store without any further training. The management was good, knew what they were talking about.
Coworkers were very friendly, some – more... drama throughout the co workers (which i was never involved in) but always some kind of job drama
Hardest part of the job was starting to redo an aisle and trying to finish it before my day was over
Most enjoyable part of my job was finishing an aisle and admiring it while my other co workers complimented it and myself for my hard work and dedication! – less

Project Accountant (Current Employee), 2190 yonge streetSeptember 23, 2014
Great company to work with that enhances one's skills to do better. Typical day would be to run reports for daily and weekly sales and send to executives. Monthly journal entries, recoveries, project/budget variance analysis, meetings and other ad hoc are part of my responsibilities.

Interesting workplace
Customer Service (Current Employee), Fredericton, NBSeptember 23, 2014
Pros: friendly people, easy, flexible hours
Cons: long hours, conflicting with school work
i've learned a typical day you cannot make everyone happy but you can try, I've learned to work cash and deal with problems that may occur in the work environment. The management are super friendly and nice. The co-workersare easy going and great to work with. i would have to say the hardest part of my job would be balancing 40 hours every two weeks – more... while going to university. The most enjoyable part of my day is making everyone can happy. – less

Filler (Former Employee), Barrie ONTSeptember 18, 2014
Pros: lunches, the people
Cons: early mornings, can be quite busy and hard to keep up
I loved my job and the people i worked with as a filler. walking in everyone who wasn't a morning person the cheerful people would change that for you. i loved my supervisor and she always made sure everyone was okay but also getting the job done for the day. the only thing i didnt like for me was how early i got up im more of a night owl. but i loved – more... the 6-2:30 shifts becuase i still had most of my afternoon. – less

Working Shipping and Receiving at Canadian TIre
o Warehouse and Receiving Associate (Current Employee), Scarborough, OntarioSeptember 15, 2014
Pros: flexible hours available during school
Cons: low wages
At this job I learned a great deal of skills I can carry on to my next job. I learned time management as receiving hours greatly restricted and it was imperative to complete all tasks within a certain timeframe in order to be ready to accept each delivery in a timely manner. I learned to treat my co-workers with a combination of encouragement, patience – more... and constructive criticism to create enjoyable and constructive relationships at work. While I enjoyed being an integral part of many aspects of the workings of the store, I feel now that I would like to put my interests and education to good use and become part of a workplace that is more challenging and rewarding. – less

Productive and Fun workplace
Sports Associate (Former Employee), Hamilton, OntarioSeptember 15, 2014
Would show up for my shifts ready to work, there is usally a bunch of floor stock that comes to the floor, once floor stock is done we would help customers and walk down each aisle and tidy it up.
Ive learned how to problem solve with other team members, ive learned how to communicate and and handle situations with customers, ive also learned how to – more... work well with others and/or individual.
Co workers were amazing, so understanding and were always there when i needed something, great bunch of people, made me like my job that much more.
Hardest part of my job would be dealing with no so friendly customers and how to ease down the situation and resolve it fast fun and friendly.
Enjoyable part of my job was knowing im coming to work to help out the business but not only that, i get to communicate and meet new people and just learn different things each day i can use in my future. – less

Parts Manager (Former Employee), Brandon, MBSeptember 8, 2014
Pros: co workers and customers
Cons: weird hours and communication
Not a bad word to say. Training was a issue though. Myself the schedule was okay but when full time people were given split shifts it made me think. When they stopped training me it made me think.

I was a retail animal. Loved the culture at the Tire but I need to keep learning. A day in the front lines in retail is a real teacher. Yet after many years – more... it is same old. When as a manager I found a real keeper for my department they took him/her away to another area.

The trainer( me) was no longer being trained. Good staff were taken away. Great for the company less so for us left. – less

Opening is purging the paint machine, check for work notes, change garbage's if not done from previous night. Make sure paint machine is ready to run. Depending on the day, Aisle maintenance, job list to be done. Price changes, and customer service for every customer.

Carrying out small tasks instructed by managers and learning new skills in the process
Sales Associate (Former Employee), Brampton, ONSeptember 2, 2014
I needed to carry small tasks dealing with products on a daily bases. I have learned alot of important things such as some very important marketing skills which are use to attract costomers. the management was very stable and the managers were very well informed of the workplace. Furthermore, Managers all had great communication, leading and problem – more... solving skills. My co-workers were very well understanding and had possitive attitude. The hardest part of the job was sometimes reporting a concern to the managers because they would always be busy with very important tasks. The most enjoyable part of the job was providing a costomer survice and being able to help. – less
